VDOT schedules lane closure for I-81 in Warren County
The Virginia Department of Transportation is scheduled to pour concrete for the widening of Route 840 (Water Plant Road) over I-81 southbound in Warren County on Tuesday, September 19.
The work requires the overnight lane closure of the left lane from 8 pm to 7 am from mile marker 298 to 300, near the I-81 and I 66 junction.
This is a regularly congested area so motorists should use caution when traveling through the work zone.
Drivers using Route 840 should be alert for flagger controlled traffic at the overpass bridge during the time of the scheduled work.
The bridge widening is part of the larger project to extend the on-ramp from I-66 to ease congestion and enhance safety.
The contract was originally awarded to Triton Construction for $7.1 million in May of 2022 with completion scheduled for November of 2024.
